DISC SPOTLIGHT: ‘Kindergarten Cop’

“Kindergarten Cop”

Blu-ray (PG-13)

Movie: 3 1/2 out of 4 stars

Disc: 2 1/2 out of 4 stars

Don’t let the presence of lots ‘o’ toddlers in the supporting cast fool you, this 1990 blockbuster fully earns its PG-13 rating and as such might not be suitable for some younger members of the family. Arguably one of Arnold Schwarzenegger’s best films, “Kindergarten Cop” finds him somewhat sending up his own image as an action hero by playing a detective who must pose as a teacher to apprehend a drug dealer. Director Ivan Reitman and his three screenwriters nimbly juggle frantic comedy, mid-level violence and genuine thrills and turn it into an amazingly effective whole. The downside is that the disc doesn’t deliver anything in the way of extras.
